I've done all of those things. My favorite way to shop for clothes, believe it or not, is by watching the fashion programs on QVC. I've never had any major problems with them, although I have bought a few things that I've had to exchange for a different size. <Smile> I'm told that I have decent fashion sense, so most of the time, their descriptions work great for me. Of course, if I need any verification, I can always call one of my girlfriends to check it out either on-line or on TV. <Smile> Take care!

Hi,
I think that catalog approach is a good idea, although the only thing I currently buy that way is dress shoes because my feet are extremely narrow. My current method for clothes is to shop at nice stores like Macy's/Belk's/Cold Water Creek when they have sales, going with someone I trust with good color sense. The person I trust the most in this regard is my mother, so I usually go with her. (And I'm thirty. OK, laugh!--I do.)

NOt a bad idea. Maybe you could get the guys from
Queer Eyes for the Straight Guy to help.  They're
doing it for more than just guys now, I think, though
I haven't watched the show in a while. It's cool,
though.

 It does not solve
everything but it helps.  I buy nice tops in colors
to go with them with
help from someone I trust.  One good thing to do is
sit down with someone
and a good catalog (from Macies or Nordstrum's when
they have sales and not
when no sales) and shop that way.  The thing I like
about catalogs is, if
you know your size, they send you things and let you
return and exchange
things.  The other thing is just to go somewhere
with someone you trust and
go to a store you know has good things when they are
on sale.  I go to
Marshals or Macies around here.  Use good stores and
wait for their
sales.  Find someone gay if you can. ( I am
serious.)  I mean find someone
who is gay with interest in fashion or a friend with
good fashion
sense.  If you have a good relationship with a
"personal shopper" at a
store, that too can work though I go with someone
who know me and knows the
kinds of thing which work at my  job (when I had one
until recently).

Remember some kinds of things stay in fashion such
as black pants and nice
silk blouses.
